I wanted to post a thread to find out what the longest bow kill anyone has ever known of! I have been wondering this since last september when my dad made his best shot ever on a big 9pt. Our family took our first out of state trip driving fifteen hours north from louisiana to a small honey hole in nebraska! This was a treat for all of us because its not common for us to see a deer when we go hunting down here, much less twenty or thirty. Anyway, it was the last evening and we aint filled all our doe tags yet so we decided to go on a meat run. We decided the best spot for a doe would be on the edge of a 30 acre alfalfa field catching the deer on a good trail where they were coming to feed! So we get set up and we aint even got an arrow on our bow yet and the first two were already out. Now this is a big field so they were prolly about two hunred yards away, but it was still pretty cool watching them. After sittin a couple hours we realized we set up in the wrong spot because there was about fifteen out in the field by now and not one of them was under about 80 or 90 yards. Since i was the one shooting and my dad was filming, i didnt want to shoot one that far with only a 70 yard pin. I was really wanting to get one about 50 yards or closer and i would have felt pretty comfortable shooting her! Although we had practiced out to 100 yards plus on our 3-d target, i really didnt figure i would need more than a my 70 yard pin. Just so happened it was getting close to dark and my camera sucks so we had just give up on filming a hunt and decided to shoot the next doe that would get inside my pin range. There was a pretty good trail coming into the field about 60 yards from us and deer had been running out of it until they got about 80 yard out and then they would stop and start feeding. So i am ready for the next one to run out and i was gonna wack her and about that time this big 9pt runs out and i am freakin out cause its the biggest buck i had ever seen on a bow hunt. He runs out and stops, and my dad ranged him at 74 yards. I am at full draw, i settled in, and cut it loose! I was watching expecting to see and hear a loud thwack, instead i see my arrow go about 1 inch over his back and it was silent. So now i am all dpressed cause i missed the biggest buck i have ever shot at and my dad breaks the silence and says "do you want me to kill him". Well i just missed him at 74 and he run away from us so my response is "What"! And he throwed me the range finder and said it again "do you want me to kill him". I said, well do you think you can? I ranged that deer at 97 yards and he set his sight and come to full draw! I couldnt help it, i just had to laugh at him knowing he was gonna miss! He shot and a few seconds later while i am looking through the binoculars, i see it hit! The deer was quartering away and he hit him in the back ham and it angled just enough that he made it about twenty yards out of the field, where we let him lay for about three hours before going to find him! Now the deer turned out to be only a 120 inch 9pt, but we were happy as anyone could be! It was the biggest one i had shot at and the biggest one he had ever killed and one heck of a story to go along with it all! Now I really dont expect everyone to believe this, but it is true because i watched it happen. I was just wondering if anyone else had ever heard of someone killing a whitetail deer at a long distance like that? If you have a story of a long shot, please take the time to post it so everyone can enjoy! Thanks, Zach!
